Duct heaters are self-contained heating units installed in air handling systems. Some heaters are integrated with other equipment, some can be directly attached to heat pumps, fans, and variable air volume terminals, and others are used as standalone heating units mounted in air ducts.

Duct Heater Applications

Air duct heaters are commonly found in industrial settings due to their versatility and affordability. They are primarily used for ventilation and comfort-heating applications, with specific uses including:

  • Primary space heating
  • Secondary space heating
  • Auxiliary heating
  • Reheating
  • Multi-zone heating
  • Air volume heating

Types of Duct Heaters

With numerous industrial applications for duct heaters, manufacturers have developed an assortment of systems to meet various needs. Murphy & Miller can help you select the ideal duct heaters for your building. Some of the most popular options include:

  • Open coil duct heaters: Fast heat up times, inexpensive replacement parts, and low maintenance requirements make open coil duct heaters among the most efficient and economically feasible units for most heating applications.
  • Tubular duct heaters: Capable of reaching very high temperatures, tubular heaters perform efficiently in heavy-duty industrial applications. They protect against electrical shock and have increased corrosion resistance for use in high-humidity environments.
  • Finned tubular duct heaters: This describes a heater with fins around its tubular elements. The fins maximize the surface area of each heating element, which helps to dissipate heat more quickly—and prolongs the element’s lifespan.
  • Explosion-proof duct heaters: This type of specialty duct heater is designed for hazardous areas, including aircraft hangars, oil drilling rigs, and flammable product storage rooms. An explosion-resistant cast aluminum enclosure protects the hardware inside and each unit is sized to fit the duct in which it’s installed.
